It looks like Danny Amendola is heading to the Motor City.

Flowers entered the league as a fourth-round pick of the Patriots in 2015.

Flowers and Amendola are due to be reunited with Lions coach Matt Patricia, who previously served 14 seasons as an assistant coach with the Patriots, including six seasons as the team's defensive coordinator from 2012-17.

The New England Patriots made an effort to sign free-agent slot receiver Adam Humphries on Monday, but they were outbid for his services by the Tennessee Titans, per ESPN's Dianna Russini.

The Detroit Lions were very active Monday, and it wasn't hard to notice a theme among the players they reportedly agreed to contracts with. He had 2.5 sacks in the Super Bowl LI comeback win over the Falcons and a pair of sacks to go along with six QB hits in this winter's three-game run to another Lombardi Trophy.

Ian Rapoport said the deal will pay Coleman $26 million over four years.

Flowers was the big catch, though, racking up two playoff sacks for the Super Bowl champs, who elected not to use the franchise tag on the 25-year-old. Harris is a second-year player on the team's practice squad. Detroit on Monday inked ex-Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James, according to the NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. He has 485 career catches and 20 receiving TDs. Those deals can't be signed until Wednesday at 4 p.m.
